Ladies and Gentlemen – It's Shark Week

Posted Tue Aug 3, 2010 at 08:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Discovery Channel's yearly celebration of all things shark is on now.

If you only turn to the Discovery Channel one time this year, make sure this is the time. You'll get the chance to see some of the greatest shark footage ever captured, including six brand new programs.

Shark Week has been running since 1987 and it's only been getting better. This year is no exception.

The show 'Shark Bites: Adventures in Shark Week' puts Shark Week and Late, Late Show host Craig Ferguson face to face with sharks while showing some of the series' best clips. 'Shark Attack Survival Guide' is, what else, a guide to surviving shark attacks.

'Into the Shark Bite' is something totally new, and potentially very cool. You'll get to see video of sharks eating and attacking – par for the course for Shark Week. What's different is that you'll be seeing all of this from inside the shark's mouth. Seriously.

Finally, Shark Week would be incomplete without an installment of the 'Air Jaws' series – a show that reveals the incredible behavior of everyone's favorite shark. If you haven't seen it, it can be explained simply. It's a show about great white sharks jumping into the air in super slow motion. It's a sight to behold.
